I really, really like the song Blood Brothers by Ingrid Michaelson which I discovered on the weekend while reading a book. A not-so-great romance novel but still. Some good came out of that read since the way this song was referenced caught my attention.
It’s such an earworm that I have it on constant replay these days on my iPod. I listen to it in the car on my way to work (and home again). I listen to it while prepping dinner. I sing it to myself (under my breath of course) perusing the grocery aisle. Yes, I’m stuck on this song.
The video of “Blood Brothers” is a time-lapse of Ingrid getting morphed into various famous people. Pretty crazy what make-up artists can do to recreate a person into someone new (or something else for that matter). Check it out.
I like how a specific song can be the perfect fit for how I’m feeling. An anthem or theme song for my life. For a short while anyway.
(Case in point: Where Them Girls At was my previous life anthem. Hey, sometimes you just need a song with a good beat you can dance to.)
With how crappy the end of 2012 was and me wanting to bury myself in a book all the time, I could use some uplifting reminders about the goodness of people. That “what I need you need too.” That we’re all in this together. In all the ways life manifests itself.
What’s a song on permanent replay for you right now?
